I find this part of the story interesting:
The pope was known for his energy, intellectualism and activism on the global stage. His health had been deteriorating severely for several weeks and he had battled Parkinson's disease and crippling arthritis for years.

John Paul II had been slipping in and out of consciousness on Saturday after his heart and kidneys started to fail after a urinary tract infection.

Navarro-Valls said that despite his precarious health, the pope had decided to remain in his residence at the Vatican, rather than returning to Gemelli hospital in Rome, where he had been hospitalized twice since February.

So it is okay for the Pope to allow himself to die despite the availability of medical care that could have kept him alive longer? Interesting.
